Britton excited about Laudrup

Swans playmaker ready to prove his worth to the new manager

Leon Britton: Swansea playmaker keen to learn from one of the game's great players

Swansea midfielder Leon Britton is counting down the days to pre-season training so that he can discover the methods of new boss Michael Laudrup.

The Danish legend was appointed as successor to Brendan Rodgers who left the Welsh outfit after one season in the Premier League to manage Liverpool.

Laudrup, who enjoyed an illustrious career as a player at Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona, has taken his success into management.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins sought out the former Real Mallorca coach because his philosophy on football mirrors that of the one already in place at the Liberty Stadium.

Methods

And Britton cannot wait to see his new manager in action on the training ground.

"We can't wait to get back on the training ground now so that we can see what the new manager's methods are and how he wants to do things," he told the Evening Post.

"It's a clean slate for everyone. We all have to prove ourselves all over again to the new manager and we'll all look forward to doing that."
